“Hi – my name is Winston. Before I came to Catholic Charities and the Gateway Supportive Housing Program, I was homeless and it was very rough on me. Catholic Charities has brought me new life, has provided me a place to lay my head. I’m happy here in my apartment. I have no problems. I can sleep now at night in comfort, I can cook, I can take a shower. It’s given me a foundation for myself – the rest is on me to work on.”
